No Posts In 7 Years, But Still Turning in Work Units In 2018

Post by Apoptosis » Mon Mar 05, 2018 3:37 pm

I just checked the status of Legit Reviews Folding @ Home Team #38296 and was shocked to see we were still turning in work units. In fact there were 601 CPU's active within the past 50 days and the last work unit was turned in on 2/18/2018. I'm speechless that people are still folding for the team. (Edit: I think this is a big as it shows that number active for all teams I looked at.)

I'm not sure who the last [email protected] user was, but thank you. Darkstar_DD was the muscle for the team over the years and has cranked out 104,000 of the 506,000 work units that were turned in. The team was in the top 100 for a bit, but has fallen back to 264. Still amazing.

I just turned on my Xeon Bronze scalable and Xeon D esxi servers that are mostly idle. Figured why not, plus it’ll keep the basement warm.

Nice to see some Blast from the Past!
I read a few weeks ago there's been some renewed interest in [email protected] with Covid 19 spreading everywhere!
I also read there have been some major changes to the setup!
dicecca112 any changes that you have noticed?

Wow I thought they folded up years ago :mrgreen:

I might have to give it a whirl again.

The setup is different, you need a key and the config is a bit different all xml based. Took me maybe an hour to spin up two VMware Photon like VMs on my two ESXi servers and get them configured correctly,

It now has a nice little web interface too which is nice. I’m pushing crazy numbers (to me at least since I last folded who knows when) which I’m quickly learning that are dwarfed by even the lowest of GPU folding.

This is what I followed. Great VMware guy to follow too.

It is amazing what GPU's can do! I keep saving up for a RTX card and then something comes up or I find a new shiny object I "need" or people buy me a new shiny object I "need" and I have to get extras for it LOL

Gonna try to get it running this weekend to see what kind of numbers I will see.
